    Default More And More Of America's PhDs Are On Welfare

    Things really do seem to be getting worse rather than better.


    The number of people with graduate degrees — master's degrees and doctorates — who have had to apply for food stamps, unemployment or other assistance more than tripled between 2007 and 2010. Of the 22 million Americans with master's degrees or higher in 2010, about 360,000 were receiving some kind of public assistance, according to the latest Current Population Survey released by the U.S. Census Bureau in March 2011.

    This is what is now going on in ABQ. Didn't used to be like this here and it is very disheartening. The sickening thing is that we have had many companies come here that were given big tax incentives and then they leave the state. HP is in the process of doing that right now.

    Heard this on the news this morning and it is not good. When husband and I moved here in the early 90's, we did so because CA felt the recession at that time severely. We were both out of work for over a year. Came here and immediately got jobs. Something has changed and it is not good for those of us living here. Now they can add the laid off ABF and YRC drivers to these numbers!

    N.M. shed jobs while most states grew
    As the nation continues its slow economic recovery, new numbers show New Mexico is one of only six states to lose jobs from 2011 to 2012.

    In fact only one state is worse off, according to statistics released Thursday by the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions, the state's labor department.
